Michael Vick suffered bruised knee vs. Giants, will be ready for fantasy owners in Week 5

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Michael Vick suffered a bruised knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's win over the New York Giants but is said to be fine. We break down the fantasy implications.

Editor's Update: Michael Vick came out of Sunday's win over the New York Giants with a bruised knee, coach Andy Reid said on Monday. Vick is expected to be fine.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick said he hurt his knee on his team's final drive of the game Sunday night and will "hopefully" be ready for next week. Vick threw for 241 yards and a touchdown against the New York Giants, and also ran for 49 yards. The Eagles play the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5.

Fantasy Impact: As expected, Vick is fine but coach Andy Reid had to address it because Vick used the word "hopefully." Fantasy owners should be more focused on the fact that Vick didn't throw an interception or lose a fumble on Sunday night. Vick remains a solid fantasy starter in most weeks, especially if he stops turning over the football.
